The first song of "Varsham" starring Mammootty and Asha Sarath in the lead is released.

The song, which begins with the lines "Koottuthedi" is rendered by Sachin Warrier. The lyrics are written by Jayageetha and is composed by Bijibal.

Watch the song below:

The song shows a get together of close family and friends where Venu (Mammootty's) and Nandini's (Asha) son Anand (Master Nabeesh) is singing the song. The song goes through some sweet and light moments of the proud parents as their son displays his talents.

The audio of "Koottuthedi" song was released on 11 October along with the film's trailer, but the visual of the song was released only on 17 October through WhatsApp and was later uploaded online.

Meanwhile, "Koottuthedi" was the first Malayalam song that was released through WhatsApp. On 16 October evening, Mammootty had asked his fans to post their numbers on his Facebook page, out of which 10 numbers were selected, who received the song directly through the app.
